Portland, OR – September 8, 2015 – ON1, Inc. has announced ON1 Photo 10, the next
generation of its photo editing and effects app for Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows.
Version 10 is a ground-up rework of Perfect Photo Suite 9, optimized for performance,
stability and ease of use. Up to 4x faster than the previous version and requiring less
memory to run, ON1 Photo 10 also includes an integrated mobile workflow, a modern
user interface, and the essential ON1 photo editing tools photographers have come to
ON1 Photo 10’s enhancements include:
• A significantly improved Effects module. Filters respond faster than ever before and
presets are easier to find and apply. New preset categories have been added for
popular photography genres, and include settings for color grading and haze
reduction. The Perfect B&W module has been fully integrated into Effects, which lets
you apply any filter—including the popular Dynamic Contrast effect—to your
monochrome images. Lastly, you now have complete control over the organization of
your presets and preset categories, making it easy to customize Effects to work the
way you want.
• Two-way syncing of photos between ON1 Photo 10 and mobile devices with our free
Photo Via app for IOS. Photo Via lets you share albums, smart albums and folders of
photos between your desktop and your iPad or iPhone using Dropbox or Google
Drive. With Photo Via, you can search, rate and share photos easily from any iOS
device, and have the metadata synced back to your desktop.
• Better and faster workflow tools for working with faces in the Portrait module. Find
facial features quicker, even with side views or faces at an angle. Portrait is faster and
better than ever. The new way of working with facial features makes it easier to
retouch the areas you care about.
• Access to Resize from any module, which lets you use the photo enlargement
features of Perfect Resize from any part of ON1 Photo 10. Sharpen, add a watermark,
or create a gallery wrap when you want, without jumping to a different module.
• Color and tone controls that make sense. Use Enhance’s exposure adjustments,
better color controls, and improved highlight and shadow recovery to make your
photos pop before taking them into other editing modules.
• Browse’s new Smart Albums feature, which lets you put your most important photos
—wherever they are—at your fingertips. You can even automatically publish your
Smart Albums to your mobile device with Photo Via.
• A new export feature, which automates the process of creating photos for printing
and sharing. Take a single photo, or a group of photos, and create whatever size and
file format you need. Combined with our improved batch processing options, we
make it simple for you to print, share and manage your photos without undue

responsive sliders, tools that won’t stick, and a user interface that is snappy, modern
and easier to use. Most of ON1 Photo 10’s image processing algorithms utilize modern
video cards (GPUs), providing better overall performance, a new sharing feature for
